I love slushies from 7-11. I'm deathly afraid of penguins. I don't know why, I just am. I have about a million different personalities. I'm the athlete, the musician, the writer, the photographer, the emo girl, the punk, and so much more. I try to find some form of interest in everything. I'm really good at turning boring situations into great fun situations. I'm a wishful thinker with the worst intentions. I'm not one for complaining. I'm running out of sympathy and I still don't sleep. I don't take anything lying down. Ummmm let's see, I'm 5'9" and 139 pounds. My hair color is always changing and I have hazel eyes. I love BMX racing. I became a professional BMX racer in January of 2007. I like dirt jumping, flatland and do some street riding on my bike as well. I also love aggressive rollerblading. I turned professional in rollerblading in 2006. I also love to MTB, skateboard, MX, wakeboard, snowboard, play paintball, baseball, and hockey. I also love playing every instrument possible. I can play the electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and piano. Monster Energy Drinks and Lucky Charms rock. I love just chillin' and watching movies and listening to music. I love to travel. I have been all over the United States, Canada, and Australia. I'd really love to go to Germany (No, I'm not a Nazi lol). I believe this society has gone to hell and not too many people care either. One thing I don't like about the majority of people is that they don't try to fix a problem until it's already too late and unfixable. I think the war we are fighting now is for a dumb reason. I lost a brother to this current war. I'm not a tree hugging hippie and I'm not an all out kill everyone type of person. I believe in fighting when it is needed, and fighting is not really needed that much. Most people just believe it is. Well guess what, it's not. Sometimes I wish people would just open their eyes and notice that such a great place is just going to waste. I highly doubt a lot of people would notice though. Half of them are just decaying in a world of greed and hate and they don't even know it. Right now I'm still in school. I have my AA in Journalism and I'm working on my BA in Criminology. I also have my BS in Political Science. If there is anything else you wanna know about me just ask. Either message me. My Yahoo! IM is: cosseychristian My AIM IM is: kristencossey My MSN IM is:

Update on my sister...

They found a heart donor for my surgery yesterday. She went into surgery and the surgery went well. Now all we have to worry about for the time being is her body rejecting the heart which hopefully doesn't happen. So please continue to pray and pray that her body doesn't reject the new heart. Thank you for all of your support and prays.

The Rules of EMS Very Funny

The First Law of EMS:

All emergency calls will wait until you begin to eat, regardless of the time.

Corollary 1 - Fewer accidents would occur if EMS personnel would never eat.

Corollary 2 - Always order food "to go".

The Paramedical Laws of Time:

1 - There is absolutely no relationship between the time at

which you are supposed to get off shift and the time at which you will get off shift.

2 - Given the following equation: T + 1 Minute =… Continue

Please Very Important Please Pray For My Sister

I am writing this blog in hopes that everyone out there will please pray for my thirteen year old sister who's in the hospital right now. When my sister was born she was born with a h*** in her heart and needed a heart transplant. Before she was even a year old she went into cardiac arrest six times and we almost lost her all of those six times. Then a miracle happened, when she was eleven months old they found a heart donor for her. She had the heart transplant and has been doing well ever… Continue

The Guys At The Station Wrote This For My Boyfriend Lol.

We are very dedicated to our work. We wear firefighter shirts everyday, even when we're not on duty. The fire department is our second home, and our second family. It often seems as if our lives revolve around the fire department, but it means nothing compared to our girl Christian. We are normally friendly people, but if you hurt our girl you will make us mad. We know our girl is growing up, even if we don't like it. She seems to like you so we'll tolerate you dating her, but here's a few… Continue

I don't know how to feel about this...

So I spoke with a department psychologist and they told me that I have post traumatic stress disorder. I have nothing against PTSD and I think it's something to take serious, but I'm not sure exactly how I feel about being told I have it. Even if I accept it I have no idea what to do for it or anything about it.

Hey Tiger. Just checked out your status updates. Fractured your hip. Hmm. Didn't stay off the motorcycle like you were supposed to did you? Don't know what we're gonna do with you, kid. I'm good. Weather is warmer, daylight is back, do some fishin' soon.

Glad to hear you're improving. As for me, just a muscle in my hip, that goes to the top of the femur. Once in a while (once a year maybe) I pull that little thing, and I don't even know how it occurs. Its called the pirifoma muscle, and when inflamed aggravates the sciatic nerve, causing pain in the buttock and leg. The term "pain in my butt" originates from this condition. I bet you were wondering. lol. It'll heal up quick.

Hey Sister:

We have been hoppin' up here in the Northland, several fires due to heating sources in this weather. Temps have ranged from -20 down to -40 or so and its been a brutal few weeks. Latest was a nice stop by the boys yesterday morning at a multiple family dwelling. I've managed to pull a muscle in my leg, but I'm off (hobbling along) to go teach Building Construction tonight. Good to hear from you Christian!! I trust you are healing up, ......safely.

Hey, just lay low and heal up as quickly as you can. You know the drill, eat right, work out (to a manageable level) and spend your down time sharpening your mind. Keep in touch! I'm rootin' for ya!
